Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday extended wishes to Afghanistan on the eve of its 100th Independence Day.

Afghanistan will commemorate its independence from Britain on August 19.

“Afghanistan is a good neighbour of India, and I wish the country for celebrating 100 years of independence this year,” Modi said in a speech on the occasion of India’s 73rd Independence Day.

Modi also condemned terrorism in all forms.

“India is strongly fighting against those who are spreading terrorism. Terrorism in any part of the world is a war against humanity and hence all humanitarian forces should come together to expose the real face of those who harbour, promote or export terrorism,” Modi said.

“Those who give protection terrorism and support it must be completely exposed,” he said in a veiled reference to Pakistan.

“Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka are also affected by terrorism. All countries in the world need to come together to fight this menace,” he said.
